Running the Mercedes-AMG 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine should point to a level of tried and trusted reliability for the Aston Martin DBX, while Aston itself has developed the car from the ground up and will be demanding nothing less than a dependable, volume-selling product.

Due to the relatively low number of sales compared to other mainstream models, the DBX probably won’t be tested by industry safety experts, Euro NCAP. However, in addition to the raft of front, side and curtain airbags, there are additional active safety features as standard, including adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist and auto emergency braking with pedestrian detection. The list of safety tech continues with systems such as traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic warning and blind spot detection.

Warranty

Aston Martin provides owners with a three-year, unlimited-mileage warranty and the option of extending the cover for 12 or 24 months when it expires.

Servicing

Scheduled servicing costs are fixed, with Aston suggesting V8-powered vehicles are seen by approved technicians annually or every 10,000 miles.
